sports Pallars Sobirà

El Pallars Sobirà is a mainly a rural county and it has a high mountain profile, which obviously favours outdoors sports. The first sport to be practised was hiking, the famously celebrated climbing was done by Father Jacint Verdaguer to the top of La Pica d'Estats, in 1883.

During the sixties, in the waters of the river Noguera Pallaresa, kayaking starts as a sport, as also the first ski resorts were built ready to function. In the eighties extreme sports become more and more popular and in the nineties the old paths connecting the villages and hamlets are recovered, which will promote the development of trekking.
